Edge of Nowhere is Insomniac's next game, exclusively for Oculus Rift

Insomniac Games, makers of Sunset Overdrive on the Xbox One and currently working on the next installment of the Ratchet and Clank series on the PlayStation 4, today appeared at the Oculus Rift press conference to unveil their next project. Called Edge of Nowhere, it's a third-person adventure game and will be playable on the floor of this year's E3.

A short trailer for the game shows that it will send players in search of a lost arctic expedition. Along the way, their own journey goes horribly wrong. Game art prominently features an otherworldly, Cthulhu-like tentacled creature.

"You’re surrounded on all sides by the unexpected, and nothing is as it seems," said Insomniac's Ted Price, who appeared on stage at the presentation.

Designing for the Rift, it seems, has not been without its frustrations for the veteran studio.

"It's been educational," Price said, "and it's been challenging. But it's also been thrilling."

The next level of puzzles.
